TORONTO (AP) - Miguel Gonzalez capped off a chaotic week with another solid start, but couldn't come up with the win he wanted for his newborn daughter.

Jose Bautista hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays won their 10th straight game Saturday, beating Gonzalez and the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.

Gonzalez (5-3) allowed three runs and three hits in 7 1-3 innings. The right-hander, who won his previous three starts, lost for the first time since May 3 at the Los Angeles Angels.

``He was outstanding today,' Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. ``He pitched really well. I was really proud of him.'

Gonzalez said facing the Blue Jays ``wasn't easy' after all he's been through in the past few days. He left the Orioles on Monday and flew home to California, arriving hours after the birth of his first child.

Gonzalez played catch with cousins and his brother on Tuesday and Wednesday, flew to Toronto on Thursday and was activated off the paternity list Friday.

``I was supposed to throw a bullpen three days ago but it didn't happen,' Gonzalez said. ``I was back home with the family.'

Despite the upheaval of parenthood and cross-country travel, Gonzalez was impressive against the streaking Blue Jays.

``Miguel pitched great,' Orioles catcher Taylor Teagarden said. ``He was able to spot his fastball in and out, use all four pitches and keep them off balance.'

Maicer Izturis had a solo homer in the fifth and Bautista hit a two-run drive for Toronto, on its longest winning streak since a 10-game run late in 2008. The Blue Jays, who are 14-4 this month, are one victory from matching the franchise record. Toronto had 11-game winning streaks in 1987 and 1998.

``It's been a great run and hopefully we can continue,' Bautista said.

The Blue Jays (37-36) are above .500 for the first time since last July 29, when they were 51-50.

Bautista traded angry words with O'Day after striking out to end the seventh inning Friday, stranding a runner at second base.

On Saturday, the Blue Jays slugger renewed the argument, yelling at O'Day while rounding the bases after his pivotal home run.

``I told him just to keep talking like he was yesterday because he kind of ran his mouth a little bit after he struck me out,' Bautista said. ``I don't know where that came from but I didn't appreciate it. I let him know that yesterday and that's a little reminder today.'

O'Day declined to talk about his spat with Bautista, while Showalter chalked it up to a clash of competitive personalities.

``Darren is a competitor, he likes to compete in those situations,' Showalter said. ``Sometimes he wins, sometimes Bautista wins. You've got two great, talented athletes competing out there and they both take it personally.'

The Blue Jays led 2-1 heading into the eighth but Teagarden tied it with a homer off reliever Darren Oliver, his second.

Gonzalez left after Munenori Kawasaki hit a one-out single in the bottom half. O'Day came on and got Rajai Davis to ground into a fielder's choice, but Bautista followed with a two-out homer just inside the left-field foul pole on a 3-2 pitch.

``I made a terrible pitch,' O'Day said. ``If I make a good pitch, he's probably out.'

The homer was the first allowed by O'Day since May 22, when Yankees rookie David Adams took him deep.

Oliver (3-1) worked one inning and Casey Janssen finished for his 17th save in 18 chances.

The Blue Jays opened the scoring in the first when Melky Cabrera scored on a wild pitch, but the Orioles tied it in the fifth after Chris Davis reached on second baseman Emilio Bonifacio's error and later scored on Travis Ishikawa's single.

Izturis put the Blue Jays back in front by homering on the first pitch of the fifth, his fifth.

Baltimore left the potential tying run stranded at third base in the seventh but knotted it at 2 in the eighth on Teagarden's one-out homer.

The Orioles have homered in 10 consecutive games, their longest streak of the season.

Blue Jays starter Chien-Ming Wang left to a standing ovation after giving up one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. The right-hander, who walked none and struck out two, has a 2.61 ERA in three starts with Toronto.

``We just didn't do a whole lot off of Wang,' Showalter said. ``He creates a great angle. His sinker has got some lateral movement and some downward movement.'

NOTES: Bautista is one home run away from 200 for his career. ... Blue Jays RHP Kyle Drabek (elbow surgery) is set to begin a minor league rehabilitation assignment with Class-A Dunedin on Saturday. ... Orioles C Matt Wieters got the day off, while Chris Davis started at DH. He doubled and scored a run, but struck out to end the game. ... Baltimore RHP Freddy Garcia is expected to start Sunday's series finale against RHP Josh Johnson, meaning LHP Zach Britton will start for the Orioles against Cleveland on Monday.
